romney presented because it was based so much on the promise of himself. >> yeah. the humanity, be we were talking about that -- what was supposed to be a victory celebration gone horly, horribly wrong, the sense they were on the precipes the golden ring was within their grasp and snatched at the very last minute was not something they were prepared for. >> not at all. as ben's argument says to make a candidacy about yourself is tough when you have advisors who say i believe mitt romney would be the best president, he's not a great candidate, and so, you know, he -- and it was funny when he would be off the record it was like a thing switch. he would come bakken ot plane, he wasn't a great comedian but he was relaxed and we're going to tell governor romney it's off the record, you guys on the record, and that's his best press conference ever. >> his on switch was his on switch and vice versa. now that it's said and done, what is romney's place in history and i know you have some thoughts about this, although you were reluctant to explain them during the break. >> this moment because -

know, let's do mitt romney economic plan. what? >> caller: yeah, what do mitt romney's advisers have to say about it. this is only the second time since fdr that a president has received 5% of 50% of the vote twice. the only other person is ronald reagan. the numbers are still being counted in the west coast so it will be bigger. obama has the bigger margin of victory than george bush did in 2004. and remember that george bush declared himself a mandate into how. >> stephanie: how long bigger do you think the poplar vote margin would have been if it weren't to hurricane sandy. obviously the popular vote would have been bigger. >> caller: no, it's clear. i wouldn't be surprised if we get to a four-point margin. this is how good this is. we are close if it expands to half a percent, which is doable with the ballots in california arizona and washington and oregon. president obamamitt romney will have around 47% of the vote. >> stephanie: how ironic tee hee. congratulations on all your rightness and smartness. >> caller: thanks very much. >> what universe is dick morris not part of

romney and use it as an overall tax reform. >> yeah, i mean, the ultimate idea here is we want to extract more dollars from the wealthy as part of a shared sacrifice in entitlement cuts. what does it matter whether you label it a deduction cut or 39.6% tax increase? ultimately, you're getting more dollars from this very top group. in fact, this may even be more progressive than 39.6. i'm a little confused as to why there's so much opposition. maybe just because romney proposed it. >> plus, you're simplifying the tax code. that's really an important part of this. you're eliminating some of those special interest fights and loopholes that exist. >> and zerlina, let's face t the election is over. obama has won. just because it was a romney idea, does it make a bad idea? >> no, i'm not saying that anything that romney proposed is a bad idea. i'm saying that it is a fact that he proposed ideas without giving any details. we haven't even really heard any of the specifics behind this particular plan, not to mention the fact that voters voted for $250,000 and above for their tax rates to

pertained to the auto bailout really i think hurt romney. >> right. >> it seems to be -- >> ultimate compliment really. >> in a weird way, yeah. what do you think of her assessment that the whole focus on bain early on is what really put the guy in a situation he couldn't get out of? >> well, i think that's what some of the internal research showed, and what they couldn't believe, as you were just saying, was that the romney camp didn't respond to this because basically bill burton, who was the co-founder of priorities usa, said they thought any minute the romney campaign would have the opposite ad, where they would show guys who got jobs because of bain. people at sports authority or, you know, places like that that were supposedly helped out by bain, but that ad was never made, and, you know, it's baffling to people like burton about why they didn't respond, but when i talked to romney people early on in the campaign they thought bain was going to be a big asset. they were describing romney as a job creator, and they just didn't see this counter narrative really, and one of the peo

. >> when he was the vice president just abandoned the president. >> he ran against him, yeah. >> right. >> that was a tough moment. now the system was different then. if you came in second you became vice president. imagine the obama/romney situation in that sense. he and john adams were the great frenemies in life. they fell out over politics in the 1790s and came back together again. it's actually an interesting tale of redemption. they fundamentally disagreed about the most important things about the country, but they admired each other in the sense that they were both fighting in a cause. >> can we ask about sally hemmings? you write this, slavery was a real subject where it kept him from martialing his hope in the service of cause of reform. on one hand, big reformer. you talked about optimism. on the other hand, his actual life completely contradicted that. >> absolutely. >> people describe sally, that she was in love with him. oth others have said that was completely untrue, that she was a slave and in a position that she was going to do whatever it took to survive. there's a ra

, the economy needs it, so i'm not sure. >> did you see bobby jindal? >> yeah, saying what you said. let's go to the politico playbook's executive editor jim vandehei. in the wake of mitt romney's loss, how are folks in the gop like jindal trying to reframe the party's agenda? using joe's words. >> well, good morning. bobby jindal called politico to offer his first thoughts on the election. and it's pretty interesting. he said the party has to stop being the stupid party and that they have to recalibrate pretty dramatically and stop being the party of big business, big wall street, big banks, big anything. and he said this dumbed down conservatism is killing the republican party. >> boy, i'll tell you what, man, that -- it's so great hearing him say that. of course, nicole wallace and i always were talking about, you know, nicole has said and i've repeated on this show all the time she said, let's stop having the debate on whether the conservative party or moderate party. let's stop being the stupid party. and i think jindal's right. and that's the thing that was so frustrating. why
